A diabetic 10-year-old boy from Gray offered a deal Wednesday as he testified about his illness before members of Congress. Charlie Albair, who hopes to play professional baseball, urged members of the Senate Committee on Aging to continue to support funding for diabetes research, education and treatment. “If you do, I will invite you to a game when I am on the Red Sox,” said Albair, who was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at age 6.
Scarborough’s second attempt to pass a new school budget failed Tuesday as hundreds of voters turned out to spurn a scaled-back spending proposal. Final results of the school budget validation referendum posted late Tuesday night by Town Clerk Tody Justice showed that 1,930 people voted against the $47.2 million spending package while 1,847 people voted for it. The budget was about $236,000 lower than the $47.4 million proposal townspeople rejected in June.
A driver who stuck his rear end out the window of his vehicle and gave a police officer the middle finger while headed north on Interstate 295 was stopped in Brunswick and arrested Tuesday evening. Naldo Gagnon, chief deputy of the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office, said the man, whose name was not immediately released, refused to pull over when Capt. Scott Stewart turned his flashing blue lights on. “The man was acting out. That’s what got Scott’s attention,” Gagnon said.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
